Really? Beans for lunch?

If you're a parent, you've probably found that the struggle to feed our kids healthy food (that they will actually eat!) is constant! It can be tough to choose the right foods to put in their lunchboxes. So, this list of things that should be in our kids' lunches caught our eye. According to EatingWell Magazine, there are three things that should be in our kids' lunches to give them the nutrients and energy they need. The first is Oatmeal Bars. They can fill a kid up quickly (if you're running late and eating on the way to school!) and last longer than a sugary cereal. Another food that is great for our kids is yogurt. It helps to provide much-needed calcium to help them build strong bones. The third food on the list made us laugh! Never would have guessed: beans! Experts say that beans have iron and many new studies show that kids don't get enough iron. Iron is good for learning, memory and battling attention problems.

So, in addition to Oatmeal Bars and yogurt, break out the "musical fruit" (sorry, teachers!) for a healthier lunch for your kid tomorrow!

Oz turns 70!!!!

One of my favorite movies growing up as a kid was the Wizard of Oz.  It was like one of the only movies we got to see, because we only had one TV channel in the little Minnesota town that I grew up in.  I am curious, if you could pick one Wizard of oz Character that best describes you, who would it be???

Annoying things at the grocery store: are you doing these things?

Annoying things at the grocery store: are you doing these things?

A list of the 20 most annoying things at the grocery story was recently published. Some of the things on the list: using those oversized "toy car" carts, running back for "one more item" and holding up the line, blocking the aisle with your cart and going through the express lane with too many items! Gotta admit, I'm guilty of some of these. How about you? Guilty? Anything to add to the list? Here's the list: http://www.walletpop.com/blog/2010/07/14/20-most-annoying-things-at-the-grocery-store/

I am guilty of texting while shopping, and I look up and see people staring at me obviously frustrated, and I blush, embarrassed.

How about those little kid carts that make the kids feel "grown up"?  I was 'brave' and let my 8 year old and 5 year old twins push those through the store today.  They were blocking the aisle, almost crashing into things and overall maybe to "excited"!  That's when you stop and remember they're only little once!

How about watermelon pyramids?  I once caused a watermelon avalanche.  As I picked mine out they all came tumblin’ down.  I jumped up and over the pile to keep them from ALL crashing to the floor!  I suspect the produce guy needed a change of pants to finish his shift.  Another lady put her head down and made a fast exit.  A third came up as I was still draped over the pile and she started to tell me, “You know, two years ago, I. . .”  Personalities really came out! I converted to eating grapes.
